        Journal of a horticultural tour through some parts of Flanders, Holland, and the north of France, in the autumn of 1817 by a deputation of the Caledonian Horticultural Society.

      Bell & Bradfute, Edinburgh 1823 - First edition, 8vo, pp. [iii]-xiv, 574, [2]; 7 engraved plates (2 folding); bound without the half-title in contemporary half polished tan calf, black morocco label on gilt-decorated spine; upper joint tender, else very good. Neill writes in his Preface that the journey, on which he was accompanied by John Hay and J. MacDonald, was undertaken to "take notice of any new or uncommon varieties of fruits and culinary vegetables, which it might be desirable to introduce into Scotland; and to establish a correspondence with some of the principal amateur cultivators and professional nurserymen." Neill (1776-1851) became head of a large printing firm but during the last thirty years of his life took little active part in its management. He was an active botanist and horticulturist, and was the first secretary of both the Caledonian Horticultural Society and the Wernerian Natural History Society. He was the author of a number of books and articles on horticultural subjects, and the gardens at his residence were always open to visitors. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        SICILIAN SCENERY

      London: Rodwell and Martin, 1823. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. A Finely Bound Book of Sicilian Views, the Front Cover with an Immense Scenic "Miniature," Surely by Miss Currie. 292 x 260 mm (11 1/2 x 10 1/4"). [62] leaves of text (plus plates). FIRST EDITION. HANDSOME FOREST GREEN CRUSHED MOROCCO BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE FOR HENRY SOTHERAN, covers with gilt fillet frame and filigree cornerpieces composed of small tools and fleurons, center of FRONT COVER WITH A FINELY EXECUTED RECESSED OVAL MINIATURE ON IVORY UNDER GLASS (with diameters measuring approximately 115 and 152 mm.), the miniature depicting a rocky shoreline and two wooden fishing boats, this within a brass collar encircled by gilt tooling; raised bands, spine gilt in densely tooled compartments, gilt-framed turn-ins, watered silk endleaves, all edges gilt (the miniature perhaps affixed to the present binding some years after it was originally painted). Engraved title and 61 FINE PLATES OF VIEWS from drawings by Peter De Wint (based on sketches by William Light) and engraved by Heath, Finden, Wallis, Askey, and others. Each leaf of descriptive text with English on the recto and French on the verso. Lowndes III, 2199; Graesse IV, 209. About a fourth of the plates with moderate scattered marginal foxing (two engravings a bit more noticeably affected), text with faint offsetting from plates and more pronounced occasional foxing, but none of these problems serious, and generally quite a satisfactory copy internally, with clean and fresh text leaves and with excellent impressions of the plates; THE VERY STRIKING BINDING LUSTROUS AND UNWORN. This is an unusually beautiful travel book, with fine engravings internally and a memorable painted scene on the front cover. An inveterate traveller who sketched most of the places he visited, William Light (1786-1839) produced the original versions of the views included here during a visit to Sicily in 1818. Another collection of his drawings, "Views of Pompeii," was published in 1828, but almost all of the sketches he produced during his lifetime were destroyed in a fire in 1839. Those that remain are housed at the University of Adelaide (Light had become the first Surveyor-General of South Australia in 1836, and was responsible for choosing the location of its capital, Adelaide, as well as for designing the layout of the city). Our "Cosway-style" volume is distinguished as the platform for a striking painted miniature of remarkable size, a scene that is so beautifully done as to be comfortably attributable to Miss C. B. Currie, the finest artist to produce binding adornments of this sort. The particular palette of soft colors used and the delicate brush strokes are hallmarks of her work. Although the vast majority of her miniatures are portraits, Currie was also adept at rendering landscapes. For example, the scene here is similar in style, technique, and color to the miniatures she executed for another scenery book, Gerning's "Picturesque Tour along the Rhine" (sold at the Safra sale at Sotheby's in October of 2011). Our miniature is also similar in size to those on the Gerning, and is surely among the largest Currie views (or scene by any other painter) to appear on a book cover.

        Die Krankheiten der Künstler und Handwerker und die Mittel sich vor denselben zu schützen. .

      - Ilmenau, Gedruckt und verlegt bey Bernhard Friedrich Voigt, 1823, 8°, XVI, 438, (2) pp.,1 Kupferstichtafel, feiner Halbledereinband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung und rotem Rückenschildchen; feines Exemplar. The first edition was published in. Modena, 1700, and reprinted in Utrecht in 1703 - the SLS Library has one copy of the latter. A revised edition (Modena 1713) is the definitive one, containing many corrections to the first and a Supplement of twelve new chapters on trades previously undescribed. Apart from reprints there are twenty-five editions and translations published before the middle of the nineteenth Century. The latest English edition was published in New York in 1940. The Present, very rare, edition is the third German. Dreceded by editions of 1718 and 170-1783. - - Ramazzini's famous 'De morbis artificum diatriba' opened up an entirely new department of modern medicine, viz., trade diseases and industrial hygiene, and is the first book dealing adequately with occupational diseases. - - Ramazzini was professor of medicine at Modena and at Padua until his death in 1714. He was not only the founder and greatest exponent of a new medical discipline, but he was also an excellent general clinician, epidemiologist, sanitarian, and poet. He wrote on the water supply of Modena, cattle plague, personal hygiene, and on the use of cinchona bark. - - Occasional references had been made to occupational diseases in general medical works since the time of Hippocrates. Paracelsus had been concerned with diseases of miners. Ramazzini methodically collected all that had been written before him on the subject and set to investigate the diseases of artisans, their causes, and the relations that existed between the disease and the occupation. In a series of masterly observations, still worthy of being read with interest and profit, he recognizes the harmful effects of metals used in various techniques, noting the damage produced by mercury in surgeons using mercurial inunctions, in chemists and pharmacists who prepared the remedies, and in gilders. He describes various disorders that attack painters due to lead poisoning. He speaks authoritatively of the diseases of tinners and of coloured-glass workers who handle antimony. He points out that disorders can result from the strain of unusual physical demands or postures, such as those required of tailors. Among his more astute observations are his accounts of the "phthisis" acquired by stone-workers and miners (silicosis and pneumoconiosis). - - There are even chapters devoted to the diseases of monks, nuns, capitalists, etc. and also of writers and "learned men" who by spending their time mostly indoors, sitting still and trying eyes, contracted serious diseases. This latter is further discussed by Linnaeus in his dissertation, Morbi artificum (1765). - - Ramazzini was the first to recognize the social significance of occupational diseases and his book appeared at a most opportune time, since, with the beginning of industrial development in the eighteenth Century, prevention of accidents from machinery and the general health of workers became increasingly important. Few classical works in medicine equal Ramazzini's book in the pleasure it gives to read today. - - "The Italian joumal of social hygiene, published since 1907, is entitled 'II Ramazzini'. - - Garrison-Morton 2121 (1st. Ed.); Castiglioni 564 - 565; Lily Libray, Notable Medical Books, 99 (1st. ed.); Printing and the Mind of Man, 170 (1st. Ed.); Rosen, History of miners' diseases (1943), 108 - 120; Waller 7728.

        THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD

      London: R. Ackermann, 1823. n. Hardcover. 241 x 159 mm (9 1/2 x 6 1/4"). 3 p.l., [5]-8, 254 pp. BEAUTIFUL CRIMSON CRUSHED MOROCCO, GILT, BY RIVIERE (signed on front turn-in), covers with French fillet borders, spine attractively gilt in compartments with central urn of flowers surrounded by a lozenge of small tools and with floral vine cornerpieces, gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, dark green endpapers, all edges gilt. With 24 very pleasing hand-colored plates by Thomas Rowlandson. Tooley 436. Tiny smudge to lower board, the vaguest hint of isolated browning, but AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, the text clean, fresh, and bright, and the binding especially lustrous and entirely unworn. This is a splendidly bound edition of Goldsmith&#39;s "Vicar," with illustrations by an artist ideally suited to bring that gentle, very English comedy to life. As DNB notes, Rowlandson (1756-1827) "revelled in the comedy of everyday life, emphasizing the ridiculous and the ribald in his inventions, poking fun but avoiding emotion and satire. . . . The pen and ink sketch, marked by brilliant draughtsmanship and acute observation of stance, movement, and character, was his forte." Trained as a painter, he nevertheless preferred the medium of pen and ink, which very well suited his style. He is is best known for his illustrations for the Dr. Syntax series (see previous item) and "The English Dance of Death." The present volume is easy to love: the binding is handsomely designed, impeccably executed, and perfectly preserved; and the copy is extremely tall, right on the border of Large Paper.

        Die Krankheiten der Künstler und Handwerker und die Mittel sich vor denselben zu schützen. ...

      . Ilmenau, Gedruckt und verlegt bey Bernhard Friedrich Voigt, 1823, 8°, XVI, 438, (2) pp.,1 Kupferstichtafel, feiner Halbledereinband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung und rotem Rückenschildchen; feines Exemplar.. The first edition was published in. Modena, 1700, and reprinted in Utrecht in 1703 - the SLS Library has one copy of the latter. A revised edition (Modena 1713) is the definitive one, containing many corrections to the first and a Supplement of twelve new chapters on trades previously undescribed. Apart from reprints there are twenty-five editions and translations published before the middle of the nineteenth Century. The latest English edition was published in New York in 1940. The Present, very rare, edition is the third German. Dreceded by editions of 1718 and 170-1783. - - Ramazzini's famous 'De morbis artificum diatriba' opened up an entirely new department of modern medicine, viz., trade diseases and industrial hygiene, and is the first book dealing adequately with occupational diseases. - - Ramazzini was professor of medicine at Modena and at Padua until his death in 1714. He was not only the founder and greatest exponent of a new medical discipline, but he was also an excellent general clinician, epidemiologist, sanitarian, and poet. He wrote on the water supply of Modena, cattle plague, personal hygiene, and on the use of cinchona bark. - - Occasional references had been made to occupational diseases in general medical works since the time of Hippocrates. Paracelsus had been concerned with diseases of miners. Ramazzini methodically collected all that had been written before him on the subject and set to investigate the diseases of artisans, their causes, and the relations that existed between the disease and the occupation. In a series of masterly observations, still worthy of being read with interest and profit, he recognizes the harmful effects of metals used in various techniques, noting the damage produced by mercury in surgeons using mercurial inunctions, in chemists and pharmacists who prepared the remedies, and in gilders. He describes various disorders that attack painters due to lead poisoning. He speaks authoritatively of the diseases of tinners and of coloured-glass workers who handle antimony. He points out that disorders can result from the strain of unusual physical demands or postures, such as those required of tailors. Among his more astute observations are his accounts of the "phthisis" acquired by stone-workers and miners (silicosis and pneumoconiosis). - - There are even chapters devoted to the diseases of monks, nuns, capitalists, etc. and also of writers and "learned men" who by spending their time mostly indoors, sitting still and trying eyes, contracted serious diseases. This latter is further discussed by Linnaeus in his dissertation, Morbi artificum (1765). - - Ramazzini was the first to recognize the social significance of occupational diseases and his book appeared at a most opportune time, since, with the beginning of industrial development in the eighteenth Century, prevention of accidents from machinery and the general health of workers became increasingly important. Few classical works in medicine equal Ramazzini's book in the pleasure it gives to read today. - - "The Italian joumal of social hygiene, published since 1907, is entitled 'II Ramazzini'. - - Garrison-Morton 2121 (1st. Ed.); Castiglioni 564 - 565; Lily Libray, Notable Medical Books, 99 (1st. ed.); Printing and the Mind of Man, 170 (1st. Ed.); Rosen, History of miners' diseases (1943), 108 - 120; Waller 7728.

        Manuscrit autographe signé

      - BANVILLE Théodore de (1823-1891), poète, dramaturge et critique. Manuscrit autographe signé intitulé Revue romantique et littéraire. 12 février 1877. 5 p. ½ in-4. Pages d¿origine découpées et contrecollées sur 4 feuillets in-4, avec en pied de la première page, une notice biographique (coupure de presse). Intéressant manuscrit du feuilleton de la vie théâtrale et parisienne que Banville tenait dans le journal Le National dont il intégra la rédaction dès sa création en 1869. La chronique revient d¿abord longuement sur la reprise à la Comédie Française de Chatterton d'Alfred de Vigny : « ce drame si éloquent, si chaste, si admirablement écrit et pensé d¿Alfred de Vigny, n'a pas vieilli d'une minute en quarante-deux ans ». Il fait ensuite la critique de l¿opéra-comique La Marjolaine composé par Charles Lecocq : « Le livret [d¿Eugène Leterrier et Albert Vanloo] est très amusant, et peut se raconter en bien moins de deux mots ». Enfin il évoque Feuilles du c¿ur, recueil de poésie de Nicanor della Rocca Vergalo.

        History of the European Languages, or, Researches into the Affinities of the Teutonic, Greek, Celtic, Sclavonic and Indian Nations. By the late., Professor of Oriental Languages in the University of Edinburgh. With a Life of the Author

      Edinburgh, Printed by George Ramsay and Company, and Hurst, Robinson and Co. in London, 1823. - Dos volúmenes en 4to.; CXXVII-468 pp. + V-508 pp. Excelente ejemplar. Encuadernación de la época, en tafilete verde claro, con doble filete en los planos, cantos y contracantos con ruedas doradas y lomera plana, a la inglesa, finamente decorada con nervios y casetones dorados. El escocés de humildísimo orígen, hijo de un pastor de ganado de setenta años, nacido los remotos highlands de Kirkcudbright en Galloway, donde aprendió a leer en las mas penosas condiciones que cabe imaginar. Una historia intelectual impresionante, en la que se suman una inteligencia portentosa, una voluntad indomable y una capacidad de trabajo sin par, lo que le llevaría en 1812 a la Cátedra de Lenguas Orientales de la Universidad de Edinburgo, y a la muerte, quizás por consunción al año siguiente. Sus singularísimos conocimientos filológicos aparecen reunidos en ésta su obra póstuma, publicada bajo los auspicios del Doctor Scot of Costorphine, en la que se rastrean los orígenes de las Lenguas Europeas, siguiendo la inspiración de John Horne Tooke (1736-1812) en sus «Epea Pteroenta, or The Diversions of - Purley», a la vez que se establecen las reglas generales del análisis filológico y se plantea un intrigante estado de la cuestión en los estudios lingüísticos para el periodo comprendido entre el anuncio en 1786 por Sir William James de la afinidad general entre el latín, el sánscrito y el griego, y la publicación definitiva, entre 1833 y 1852 por Franz Bopp (1791-1867) de su detallado estudio sobre los sistemas de conjugación del sánscrito, griego, latín, persa y alemán.

With an Appendix, Containing a Correspondence on That Subject, and the Latest Reports of the State Prisons of Philadelphia, New York, Massachusetts, &c. London: Printed for T. Cadell, 1823. 141, 118 pp. Octavo (5-3/4" x 9"). Contemporary gray paper boards with contrasting quarter paper spine, printed spine label, untrimmed edges. A few inkstains and light rubbing to boards, backstrip worn, boards partially detached but secure. Author presentation inscription to Gulian Verplanck to front free endpaper. Light foxing in a few places, interior otherwise fresh. * Only edition. The early nineteenth century was a watershed period in the history of penology. Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe&#39;s work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He outlined these ideas in Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1819). He elaborated them, and responded to critics, in two later volumes: Further Observations and Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals, Part III (1825). Verplanck [1786-1870] was a prominent member of the New York Bar and an important reformer. He served four terms in the U.S. Congress, where he was chairman of the Ways and Means committee.

        Map of the County of Cumberland, from an actual Survey made in the Years 1821 & 1822, By C. & I. Greenwood, Most Resepectfully Dedicated to the Nobility, Clergy, Gentry of the County By the Proprietors.

      Published by the Proprietors, Geo. Pringle,70 Queen Street, Cheapside, April 10th, 1823., London, - Greenwood's large-scale map of Cumberland Large engraved map on six sheets, dissected and mounted on linen, housed in original maroon morocco pull off slipcase, lettered in gilt to spine. The maps by Christopher and John Greenwood set new standards for large-scale surveys. Although they were unsuccessful in their stated aim to map all the counties of England and Wales it is probably no coincidence that of the ones they missed, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Oxfordshire, all except Cambridgeshire were mapped by Andrew Bryant in a similar style and at the same period. From a technical point of view the Greenwoods' productions exceeded the high standards set in the previous century though without the decoration and charming title-pieces that typified large scale maps of that period.The Greenwoods started in 1817 with Lancashire and Yorkshire and by 1831 they had covered 34 counties. Their maps were masterpieces of surveying and engraving techniques, and in view of the speed at which they were completed, their accuracy is remarkable. They mark the boundaries of the counties, hundreds and parishes, churches and chapels, castles and quarries, farmhaouses and gentlemen's seats, heaths and common land, woods, parliamentary representatives and distances between towns. The price of 3 guineas each compares with the the first edition Ordnance Survey sheets of 7s 6d, though the latter did not relate to complete counties.
